Scioto County is privileged to be part owner of the Elizabeth L. Evans Outdoor Education Center/Canter’s Cave 4-H Camp. Camp is located on Caves Road off of SR 35 about 7 miles west of Jackson. It is a beautiful setting of almost 300 acres and provides youth the chance to experience nature and participate in lots of fun and exciting activities.

The camping program offers youth the opportunity to hike, swim, canoe, boat, fish, make crafts, attend dances and campfires, sing songs, and participate in many other fun activities. There are also special programs and guest speakers. The camp has a permanent staff consisting of a camp manager, nurse, lifeguards, program directors and cooks. Trained counselors, OSU Extension Educators and adult supervision are also on-site on a continuous basis at the camps.
